Props to you, Armscye, for at least trying to do it yourself. I've come to prefer the buttonholes on Italian suits - no, not the keyhole style found on Brioni, Borrelli or Kiton, but the kind I've tried to illustrate in the picture below, #2. #1 is my rendition of the traditional Brit buttonhole, which I do not find very different from the kind made by Brioni, Borrelli or Kiton. Oxxford, I think, should use thinner thread for its buttonholes.
